You can use a technique called sIFR to embed fonts into html

Quoted Definition - "sIFR is meant to replace short passages of plain browser text with text rendered in your typeface of choice, regardless of whether or not your users have that font installed on their systems. It accomplishes this by using a combination of JavaScript, CSS, and Flash, which renders the font. It degrades gracefully if Flash is not present. sIFR 3 is open source and licensed under the CC-GNU LGPL."

which will also render the fonts anti-ailsed (photoshop esk) and it degrades nicely so if flash or JS is not present the user ends up with a usable page.  It can be tricky to implement tho so best used sparingly.

Works for all browsers so long as flash and js is enabled
